Thick and satisfying, this soup is full of the flavor of peas. In summer, be sure to use fresh peas. For a thinner soup, add 1 cup milk or thin cream. I use Carnation Evaporated milk. I microwave a couple of potatoes until soft, then peel and dice and add to soup after it has been cooked for some texture and my son likes potatoes in his soup. The Total Fibre Book

Very good and very healthy, but I used veg. broth because I'm a vegetarian and added Goya's imitation ham flavouring because it was bland to me - but I add to pretty much every recipe, so maybe this deserves 5 stars.
